Policy for Weapons Turn-In

The Sheriff’s Department would like to advise members of the community what the proper procedure is for turning over firearms to a law enforcement agency. Anyone wanting to bring a gun to one of the Sheriff’s Department’s facilities shall adhere to the following guidelines.

The firearm shall remain UNLOADED in a locked vehicle, while the possessor contacts Sheriff’s Department personnel in the facility to advise that they have a gun to turn in. Provided that there is sufficient staffing at the facility, a department employee will escort the possessor outside to the vehicle and retrieve the firearm. Any person bringing a firearm to be turned in must have valid California identification, and will be subject to a records check to ensure that his/her possession of the weapon is not in violation of the law, which could subject the individual to arrest.

This policy allows for registered or unregistered weapons to be retained by the Sheriff’s Department, and the possessor will be given a property receipt to be retained as evidence of having relinquished the weapon. Acceptable locations where weapons may be forfeited are the Sheriff’s Department headquarters at 711 G Street, the North Division station at 5510 Garfield Avenue, the Central Division station located at 7000 65th Street, or the Rancho Cordova Police Department at 2897 Kilgore Road. Hours of availability for weapons turn in shall be from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and based on the availability of department personnel at the time.
